LessCaring Less is a rock band from Philadelphia, PA. The band formed in early 2019 when Sara, Ryan and Nathan met on the Philly DIY forums online. Not long after meeting for the first time, the three started playing covers of Fleetwood Mac songs and adapting Sara’s previously acoustic music to be played by a full band. Sara pulled in Nicholas to drum, and the foursome was set. The band’s music combines the shimmering, heavy guitars of indie legends Soccer Mommy and Petal with lyric and vocal styles reminiscent of the soulful Joni Mitchell and Jeff Buckley. Caring Less has been playing shows at venues all over the Philadelphia area, including The Grape Room, Khyber Pass Pub, and West Philly’s famous Porchfest music festival. The core of Caring Less’s music is lead singer Sara Johnson’s expressive and evocative vocals. Nathan Garfield sings backup vocals and plays lead guitar, Ryan Acito holds down the bass lines and Nicholas Kreh keeps itall together with the drums. Caring Less spent the summer of 2021 recording and perfecting their first major release, an EP due in Summer 2022. This EP has six songs demonstrating the depth and breadth of their unique SpecialArchive Special blends vintage rock riffs and hooks with standout percussion, smooth keys and soaring vocals. Their latest release, Volume III, in 2022 evokes the energy of Santana, Sabbath and Zeppelin.  Formed in 2014, the band emerged from the neighborhoods of Philadelphia as close friends rooted in the Philly music scene. They released prior albums, City Walls in 2019 and In the Eyes of Time in 2015.

An Evening With Local H

**This event is 21+ — Valid ID required for entry**Doors: 7 PMShow: 8 PMLOCAL H (Here Comes the Zoo 20th Anniversary Tour) Local H, the iconic alt-rock duo known for their blistering live shows and unorthodox two-piece setup, are at the top of their game three decades after they first burst onto the music scene. Now, frontman Scott Lucas, who covers both guitar and bass (through an extra pick up in his guitar), and drummer Ryan Harding are gearing up to release their 9th studio album, LIFERS. 
 Local H’s first major release was 1995’s Ham Fisted, but it was their 1996 follow up album As Good As Dead that positioned the band as one of the elites of 90s rock. The radio hit “Bound For The Floor” emerged as a generational anthem and remains a staple on playlists around the country today. Their widely praised 1998 concept album Pack Up the Cats solidified Local H as a leader in the genre, and the albums that followed reflected not only the band’s definitive character, but also their relentless effort to give their audience as much of themselves as possible. 
 The past five years have been some of the busiest of their career. They released their 8th studio album Hey, Killer, numerous EPs and live records, and a series of “Mix Tapes” featuring a surprising mix of cover songs. They’ve toured almost constantly, with hugely successful tours with the likes of  and , including performances on ‘s sold out stadium tour.
